small towns and big cities all across america every day. since friday morning, a police officer was gunned down in memphis, leaving four children without their mother. two officers were killed outside a grocery store in topeka. a woman was shot and killed inside a las vegas casino. three people were shot inside an alabama hospital. a four-year-old was caught in a drive-by in missouri, and taken off life support just yesterday. each one of these americans was a victim of the everyday gun violence that takes the lives of more than 10,000 americans every year -- violence that we cannot accept as routine. so i will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. we won't prevent them all -- but that can't be an excuse not to try. it won't be easy -- but that can't be an excuse not to try. and i'm not going to be able to do it by myself. ultimately if this effort is to succeed it's going to require the help of the american people -- it's going to require all of you. if we're going to change things, it's going to take a wave of a
chopper shot of new york city. welcome back to "morning joe" at 47 past the hour. it's time now for the "must-read opinion pages." we're going to start with one by senator chuck schumer in "the washington post." a middle ground on gun limits. and he says this, in part. "the truth is, it was bad strategy to ever deny an individual right to bear arms and, similarly, the special place guns hold in our culture. that mentality alienated potential allies in the ideological middle of the gun debate. in the current state of play, moderate gun owners have become convinced by the nra and other, even moorad cal gun organizations such as gun owners of america, that the goal of all gun safety advocates is to take aware their guns. these owners view even the most reasonable gun-safety proposals with suspicion, fearing a slippery slope to a ban on firearms. this paranoia is what gives the gun lobby its power." and there really is a lot of fear among gun owners. >> well -- >> in certain areas. >> -- when you have gun organizations after barack obama is elect the first same saying they're going

much time in pennsylvania think of it as a -- a state of big cities and small towns but they may miss the -- the substantial agricultural economy that we have. agribusiness in our state is a $46.4 billion industry. 17.5% of pennsylvanians are employed in the so-called food and fiber system. and one of the questions we have to ask is: what does this all mean? well, i think it certainly means that at least we need a five-year farm bill, not -- not a short-term farm bill. we do too much of that around here on -- on other areas of public policy. we should do what we've always done in the senate long before i got here, passing five-year bills with regard to the farm bill. it does create economic opportunities in rural areas. it sustains the consumers and businesses that rely upon our rural economy. the senate-passed farm bill would reduce the deficit by approximately $23 billion through the elimination of some subsidies, the consolidation of programs, and -- and producing greater efficiencies in the delivery mechanisms in programs. now, we're having a big debate about the end of the year a

for the northern suburbs. in the city itself, i'd say near 2 inch of snowfall. northern michigan, he could see fairly significant snow, some places up to a foot or so. but that snow, that system which means so much to millions of americans is going to drive its way eastward, bringing rain, strong storms ahead of it and what you can expect point by point. eastern third of the country, pretty quiet, at least along the coast. it's the ohio valley, mid mississippi valley where you can have snow and rain. let's wrap it up and send it back to you. >> perfect. reynolds wolf, if you're just joiningous "worldwide exchange," these are your headlines. the boj increases asset purchases for the on ferd time since august. it could be announced today. brinksmanship continues as president obama threatens to veto john boehner's plan b for the fiscal cliff. >>> and russia's richest man, alisher usmanov was one of a group of early facebook investors who achieved spectacular returns. geoff cutmore asked mr. usmanov just what prompted him to make that investment in the first place. >> what i saw in facebook from t
